Helping Your Teen Keep The Faith Through College
Saturday, January 27
9:00-10:30 am

Alumni Chapel
The sad reality is that many teens who are raised in Christian homes and attend Christian schools leave their faith behind during their college years. What can we do to help our children follow Jesus for a lifetime? Through this workshop will be equipped with biblical principles and parenting approaches which will strengthen your spiritual connection with your son or daughter and help them keep the faith. There is no cost, but pre-registration is required so that we have the right amount of refreshments. Students are welcome and encouraged to attend. Register at www.visionaryfam.com/wa
